Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Whitfield Estates home. Rats’ teeth grow constantly, so they need to gnaw on things to wear down their teeth. Unfortunately for you, that means they can – and will – chew through anything to get where they want to go, including drywall, wood and wall studs, plumbing pipes, and electrical wires. They will also help themselves to the food in your pantry, leaving behind unsanitary droppings and contaminated food. For help call the Manatee County, FL Rodent Pros today!

Rats can also carry a number of disease-causing germs that are harmful to adults, children, and pets, such as Salmonella and E. coli, which can cause food poisoning or other infections. Rats can also transmit rabies, bubonic plague and Weil’s disease (leptospirosis). For these reasons, it is extremely important to call our Whitfield Estates rodent control service and get rid of rats in your house as soon as you realize you have a rat infestation.

Burrows Or Nests Holes in the ground around foundations, plus nests in attics or trees are evidence of a rat problem. They may eat vegetation, but prefer to meat or meat-related wastes. Read more about what rats eat. As mentioned above, roof rats prefer above ground nesting locations in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation.

  • Dealing With Roof Rat Problems

Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups. No chemical repellents are specifically registered for rat control. Avoid using poison and glue traps, as these are inhumane and cause more problems than they solve. Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings. Usually the peaks in breeding occur in the spring and fall. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. They are often found living on the second floor of a warehouse in which Norway rats occupy the first or basement floor. Like Norway rats, they are omnivorous and, if necessary, will feed on almost anything.
